Thread Name: Liverpool Folk Club 1970
Subject: RE: Liverpool Folk Club 1970
Just back from a few days in mid-Wales and pleased to see this is still going strong. Tony Murphy, I think, still lives out Huyton way. I used to go to a club at the Flying Picket in Hardman Street a few years back and Tony was a somewhat vocal resident in all senses of the word.
Things had a left wing bias, Dave Cox was the Organiser, they had a Bank account with my old employer which went the way of all things! -blowed if I can remember the club's name. The People's Folk Club? Summat like that.
There was an annual one-day Festival that they organised and I MC'd at - that went fine for a year or two. Recall seeing Janet Russell and Jim Woodland and Roy Bailey on the bill - well, you would, wouldn't you!?
